Thoroughly organise your wardrobe with these tips
Your wardrobe is overflowing with clothes, yet you need help finding something. Does that sound familiar? Or perhaps you end up pulling out all your clothes, and before you know it, your wardrobe and room are a mess again. It’s high time to organise your wardrobe and keep it tidy thoroughly. Still trying to figure out where to start? Here are some tips!
Divide your clothes:
Are you familiar with the rule of three? These are three handy tips that help in organising your wardrobe. While sorting through your clothes, create three piles:
- Clothes you want to hang or store in your wardrobe.
- Clothes you want to store elsewhere (e.g., summer clothes or winter clothes).
- Clothes to donate, give away, or sell.
With this rule, consider the season as well. Clothes you’re not wearing shouldn’t unnecessarily occupy your wardrobe. If you don’t have other storage options, you can put those items, for example, in your travel suitcase or storage boxes.
Think in outfits:
If you often struggle to decide what to wear in the morning, try hanging ready-made outfits in your wardrobe. You could group together stylish combinations, saving you time in the morning. This way, you can stay in bed a little longer and immediately see which clothing items no longer match.
This concept also applies to shopping. Instead of buying individual items, purchase complete outfits at once. That way, you can be sure they’ll look good together!
Help with discarding:
If you’re unsure whether to throw something away, sell it, or give it away, consider when the last time you wore it? It’s probably time to let it go if it’s been over six months.
If you can’t remember, try this trick:
Hang your clothes hangers in the opposite direction in your wardrobe, with the open side facing forward. When you wear something, hang it back with the hook facing the opposite direction. After a few weeks/months, you’ll see exactly which clothing items you never wear.
